  • Recommended, various art gallery! Wednesday is free of admission 😉 I'm not an art fanatic but was enthusiastic about this gallery. Widespread variety of art right through the 20th century.
  • We were pleasantly surprised to learn of the many outstanding Russian artists of the 20 century! There are many different styles, so it can fit the taste of many. Kirzhov gallery is definitely a highlight Some huge works worth taking the time to sit and enjoy. The audio guide was sure good to give you an idea of the main artist. After browsing the gallery for 2 hours we had a coffee and a stroll on the beautiful Gorky park on a beautiful summer day.
